Position Profile:
Assistant Conductor/Accompanist:
Unique in its environment, Texas Boys Choir (TBC) members attend school at Fort Worth
Academy of Fine Arts (FWAFA), a public charter school that enrolls talented students by
audition. The boys in TBC receive daily training and direction in musicianship, vocal technique,
choral collaboration, performing for and engaging with an audience, and self-discipline. Music
history and theory are also woven into the curriculum, to ensure that each boy increases his
cultural and musical literacy. TBC and FWAFA seek an educator who will continue to build upon
our legacy of choral excellence. The Assistant Conductor/Accompanist will teach, challenge, and
inspire students both artistically and academically in TBC and FWAFA music courses as assigned.
TBC consists of a Training Choir of boys in grades 3-4 who learn choral repertoire for
performance while receiving rigorous training in aural skills, sight-reading, and vocal technique;
a Cambiata Ensemble of boys in grades 7-8 who are in the early stages of voice change; and a
Tour Choir consisting of a Treble Ensemble of boys in grades 5-8 and a Men’s Ensemble of boys
in grades 9-12 who rehearse and perform separately as well as together as a mixed choir. Midyear voice changes are a frequent occurrence in a boychoir, requiring the artistic staff to be
sensitive to the physiology, emotions, and wellbeing of singers as their voices evolve.
